MCA service team hits the streets to help find boy

The 1Malaysia Petaling Jaya Service Team, launched last year by a group of MCA members, went down to the ground to distribute A4-sized posters of six-year-old William Yau Zhen Zhong, who has gone missing for almost a week.

Student Michelle Ng, who saw the group distributing the flyers on the child at the SS2 commercial area here, quickly whipped out her iPhone and took photographs of the poster.

She said she would pass it on to her family and friends via her Facebook and Twitter accounts as well as on her WhatsApp instant messaging application.

“I hope he is found safe and well soon,” said the 20-year-old, who felt sad the boy has been without his family for six days.

Students A. Joycee and K. Lilavathy expressed their worry over the boy's wellbeing, while postman Mohd Sanusi Mustapha said he would keep a lookout for William.

“I saw the news on TV. I cannot imagine the heartache and worry his parents are going through right now,” he said.

Fast food delivery rider Ridzuan Bohari, who has three young siblings, aged eight to 12, said he could relate to the distress of the missing boy's parents.

“I worry about my siblings' safety all the time. I hope William's parents will get good news soon,” he said.

The 1Malaysia PJ service team kicked off its search for William by handing out 500 posters of the missing boy, with his personal details, to shopkeepers, commercial outlet owners, the police and the public in the SS2 area.

Team member Chew Hoong Ling said they would continue their effort until William is found.

“We do a lot of social services and we will distribute more posters in the next few days,” she said.

Petaling Jaya Utara MCA division deputy chief Datuk C.K. Lim hoped William would return in time to celebrate the Chinese New Year with his parents.

“To those who may be detaining William, please release him. His parents are worried sick,” he pleaded.
